Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie

As soon as Autumn comes around and canned pumpkin hits the shelves I start stocking up. You can't find it any other time of year. So the first shopping trip I saw pumpkin on the shelf I bought a few cans. Tonight I made a variation of traditional pumpkin pie. 

Instead of simple evaporated milk I used sweetened condensed milk. 
Instead of a traditional crust I used graham cracker crusts. 
And to top it off a brown sugar walnut crumble top. 

Yum.
Yum.
